Pulp Goodness

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If they're into pulp/noir stories, than absolutely. It's 30 + hours of gripping tales from a universe that is both new to many listeners but at the same time familiar.


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Very much. Since I listen in the car, I would catch myself staying in the car a bit longer after I've arrived at my destination just to finish the chapter or the entire story.


What about Pete Milan’s performance did you like?

You can tell that Milan enjoys this type of story. Despite the amazing number of characters and accents involved in this omnibus, Pete manages to make every one of them a unique one, and he pulls off the Max/Peregrine voice switch on a level with Kevin Conroy's switch between Bruce Wayne and the Batman.Fantastic work, especially considering just how much material there is!


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

"When good is swallowed by the dark, there the Peregrine shall leave his mark"


Any additional comments?

While the book is mostly PG-13, there are a few sequences that tread perilously close to that R rating. Primarily gore and sexual violence, so be warned. Also, the end of the book contains a timeline of the entire "universe" that contains spoilers for later stories in the series.
